one of the them which I will never forget , that was the first time I pass a check point without my parents and I didn’t have the ID card that would make me pass it yet - I was 15 .
so any one younger than that is allowed to stay in the car , but I had to enter it walking after , I think it’s the first time I cried when I came home because of humiliation !
I was in the line with friends and sure tens of people , just in that section - you know the system goes like that you wait and wait ‘till a solider is finally in the mood of letting you pass .. every time the light becomes green 4 people are allowed to keep going to another stop , when the solider sees your ID card from the other side of glass … but when they don’t like a person or suspect any one the call them to a room to ” take off their clothes ” but a man was forced to do that in front of us - I was about to scream I saw the tear in his eye !
then it was my turn , I explained that I’m not old enough to carry an ID card ! but he didn’t really take it , he screamed but when they saw the people angry they let me pass !
I always notice soldiers on checkpoints mocking Palestinians and stuff , and that scary moment - as a child - when they scream and gather with their big guns and run after some car !
This is a waiting line in front of a checkpoint on the way to Hebron but it’s an easy pass one compared to Qalandia checkpoint and a new one in Sh’fat( taken today 22nd of Dec )
